Sonoma Wine Country & California Coast Bike Tour – Overview

Sonoma Wine Country & California Coast Bike Tour - bike route map

Ride the quieter regions of the California Wine Country and Pacific Coast by bicycle

Inspired vistas, intimate wineries, sun-kissed hills—this is California’s celebrated Wine Country cycling landscape. The routes are ideal for biking no matter how hard or easy you want to go. On this trip, we explore valleys of world-famous vineyards, forests of soaring redwoods, perfect pastoral landscapes and the captivating Pacific Coast

A California Wine Country Bike Tour — With a Difference

There are literally dozens of Wine Country bike tours in California to choose from, so what makes our Sonoma County biking tour different? Simply, we avoid the more famous and heavily traveled portions of the Wine Country and choose to ride in the quieter and more intimate areas in Sonoma County. And while many Wine Country bike tours are long on wineries and short on cycling, our tours always emphasize the rides. Each day we even include a “breakaway”, a more challenging long ride option for up to 60 miles of cycling with some substantial climbing —enough riding to please any bicycling enthusiast.

The differences are clear from the very start. We stay beneath the redwoods in the tiny and quaint Russian River town of Monte Rio, located on the meandering Russian River, midway between the Sonoma County Wine Country and the California Coast. This location makes it an ideal base camp for both a Wine Country ride and a Pacific Coast ride. But tiny and quaint doesn't mean spartan; we stay and dine at the charming and inviting Village Inn, on the banks of the Russian River.

Phenomenal Biking Vacation

We just returned from the UDC Wine Country Tour, our first biking tour vacation, and we are already planning our next trip with UDC! Our guides, Daryl and Laura were friendly, helpful and encouraging to all the bikers from experienced to beginner. I went with high expectations after reading previous reviews and the itinerary, but my experience far outweighed even those high expectations. The organization, the daily routes, riding to our hearts desire, spectacular views, splendid accommodations and the endless amount of delicious food and a chance to meet new, friendly bike enthusiasts have given us the memories of a great biking vacation. Thank you UDC, Daryl and Laura...you two are the best!!!
